Book: Art In The Streets
Posted on 15 February 2012
Art In The Streets was the first exhibition at MOCA LA under the guidance of Jeffrey Deitch, formerly of Deitch Projects NY that helped create a growing subculture of street-art-meets-contemporary-meets-modern art, or whatever label you'd want to attach this giant genre of artist to. It was the first art opening to showcase an international talent and history of this movement, and could almost serve as a follow up to Aaron Rose's 'Beautiful Losers' show that without a doubt has influenced our little sub culture of surfing enormously. Or maybe they influenced each other? Either way, it is pretty awesome to be able to say that the Art In The Streets show at MoCA had the highest total attendance of any art exhibit in the history of MoCA. When does a subculture grow up and become recognized as a culture? Seems to us like we're all on to something. This book looks to prove that with over 300 pages of photos and text, all bound together in an insane hardcover. Now available in our print section.
